a charming little 'american perfection' one-piece curved soprano saxophone built by martin in 1921. 99 years old, it plays well and sounds wonderful, much like the martin handcraft. personally i can't resist (any form of temptation or) a curved soprano, i think they look hilarious and they are easier to hear than the straight version when playing. this one is a treat. it is very old, and there are things it lacks, like the top note you might expect , for example - it's only keyed up to E flat - or pearl key touches, but this pales into insignificance when you blow it and hear how it sounds. i've had it for several years now, but i also have 2 borganis, and a conn 'new invention' in curved sopranos, as well as a martin handcraft and an SML king marigaux as straightmen, and so i offer it to you.
